Research Interests
My research mainly focuses on hormonal and psychological sources of individual differences in human mate preferences and behavior, including how menstrual cycle effects, hormonal contraceptive use, and other sources of hormonal variation affect mate choice in men and women. Additionally, I am interested in human sexual behavior and adaptive preferences for cues to kinship and underlying markers of mate quality.
